Google Search’s SafeSearch ensures that you do not see explicit content in your search results. To include this content, first turn off SafeSearch. We show you how to do it on desktop and mobile.

You only need to disable SafeSearch on one of your logged in devices. This setting is synced across all of your Google devices.

Note: If your Google Account is managed by your parent or guardian, they must disable SafeSearch. You can not do that yourself.
